Gateway, CHD’s Community Behavioral Health Center
We’re pleased to partner with the state of Massachusetts to increase access to urgent behavioral health care though our new outpatient behavioral health clinic and crisis services. Gateway, CHD’s new Community Behavioral Health Center in Chicopee, provides:
- An outpatient behavioral health clinic
- 24/7 mobile crisis services
- Crisis stabilization for youth and adults in person and via telehealth
Our CBHC program delivers these services as an alternative to hospital emergency departments. It also offers respite, outreach, medication management, and peer-level support to ensure that your family member is taken care of on every level.
Same-day Evaluation and Referral
Gateway provides same-day evaluation and referral to treatment, evening and weekend hours, and timely follow-up appointments, because we understand that when an urgent behavioral health need arises, every minutes counts.
Our CBHC serves Chicopee, Holyoke, Ludlow, South Hadley, Belchertown, Granby, Monson, Palmer, Southampton, and Ware; as well as individuals from any region who are already receiving CHD services.
By centralizing resources for a given area under one roof, Gateway reduces duplication of services and enhances coordination among frequent touch points for mental health needs—hospitals, doctor’s offices, schools, first responders and recovery networks—to improve access to essential care for people and families, deliver a better experience, and reduce the impact of urgent mental health needs on the healthcare and emergency response systems.
